Im familiar with using benonite at the beginning of primary. Im just wondering about the use of using benonite as a clearing agent after a month or two of aging. I have a strawberry rhubarb wine about month or two into the aging process and has cleared very little. I plan on vaccum racking and degassing it agian tonight to make sure Co2 is not the problem. Ive already added KC after secondary fermentation and stabalizing, so i dont want to use it again. finishing sg was 0.992. Smells great, just not clearing. So when using benonite as a clearing agent i dissolve it in a cup of warm water and then mix it into the wine? I also have sparkloid but ive never used it before, ive been told it strips too much out of the wine. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Benonite? Sparkloid? Or just give it a good vacuum degas and give it more time?
